Researcher of the Week:
Chelsea Vane

Meet Chelsea,
She is a Mechanical Engineering major, a NIST Scholar and a UMBC Track and Field Athlete. Her time of 13:06.05 for the 3,000m ranks as the seventh-best in UMBC program history.

Her summer research project began by applying machine learning techniques to manufacturing. Machine learning, in this case, is where data is inputted into a program and the program then learns the patterns and structure of the data. After that, predictions of new data are generated. In her project, she studied the efficiency between the theoretical and predicted, or machine-learned, data.
